Most people, with a new toy, are likely to do at least 1000 miles/1500kms in the first few weeks of ownership, not too long to show a little restraint I would have thought. Say, for example, the engine blows in that time with the tacho needle stuck bent round the stops, are you totally convinced that VW's friendly lawyers are going to happily agree to replacing the donk?
My dealer's workshop manager told me I could drive it like mad from day one, so I nodded, and after I had driven quietly home I read the manual. I've had engineers tell me fanciful tales for 40 years, and I know when to ignore them. I found that asking them to put their suggestion in the tech log, and sign it, usually stopped that kind of nonsense. Kept me, and my 300 pax safe!
Totally ignoring the clear instructions [given in the 3.2.13 of the handbook I possess] is only for the very brave, especially with the reference to oil consumption.
